I do wish I wasn't required to withdraw more than I need for expenses.

My dad had the same complaint. After I pointed out that the requirement to withdraw funds from the IRA and include them in taxable income wasn't a requirement to actually spend the funds, he stopped complaining.

These days, I take RMDs from the part of Dad's IRA that I inherited. They just get transferred to my taxable brokerage account, where they are invested like all other after-tax funds. Works for me.
